The Produce Mom is now partnering with Cleveland, Ohio-based Yonanas, a product that turns frozen fruit into a creamy dessert that looks and tastes like soft-serve ice cream.
“One of the biggest challenges in the produce industry is food waste. In fact, 40% of items in the produce department end up in the trash,” Lori Taylor, The Produce Mom, said in a news release. “I love Yonanas because it’s a delicious use for over-ripe fruit. It’s also a perfect example of an industry-insider tip that can make things easier at home.”
“Yonanas is thrilled to be working with The Produce Mom,” Eileen McHale, co-founder of Yonanas, said in the release. “We look forward to connecting with the many consumers that follow The Produce Mom and sharing with them this creative way to eat more fruit.”
Taylor said that she loves to use bananas, blueberries, raspberries and even apples. She said that she just freezes her fruit, then takes it out of the freezer for around 10 minutes before putting it into the Yonanas maker.
